You are referring to the key and tumbler assembly. It requires special tools to remove the steering wheel and steering lock plate. It also requires a special tool for the installation. It would be cheaper to have a mechanic do it.

Nothing....it's actually a Chevelle Malibu. A lot of times....especially for the older cars, most people just drop the "Malibu" part. Improved: The Malibu is an improved trim option from the Chevelle 300 Series So from 1964 and 1965 Chevrolet Malibu (SS)/ Chevrolet Chevelle 300 (deluxe) 1966 till 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle 300(Deluxe)/Malibu/SS 1969-1972 Chevrolet Chevelle 300/Malibu/SS

Behind the assembly is where the bulb goes. Unplug the electrical connecter. You turn the bulb 1/4 of a turn and pull it out. DO NOT touch the glass part at all as the bulb will possibly blow out when turned on.

It will always be near the drivers leg area under the dash. It might be obscured by a cover connector cover. This is part of the OBDII standard.

You have either a relay or a switch and they are not the same. I assume you are referring to the turn signal switch. The labor is about 1.3 hours and the part is probably $75.00 to $100.00.

The alternator light circuit is different from the charging part. The charging part goes to the battery, while the light part goes to the instrument panel. There seems to be a grounded wire in the light circuit.

The horn goes off by itself on a 1998 Malibu as part of the security system. When the security system is enabled, noises and people touching the car can make the horn go off on its own.

There are many dissimilar vehicles vehicles out there called Chevrolet Malibu, and front/rear wheel bearings can be different. Is your Malibu FWD or RWD? If fwd: no. The wheel bearings are ball-in-cage type bearings that are an integral part of the hub-and-bearing assembly which must be replaced as a unit. If rwd: maybe. The front wheel bearings are taper bearings held in place by a nut with cotter pin. The rear rear wheel bearings (axle bearings) are in fact pressed into the axle tube.

Go to the junkyard and ask them for the part you need and have them look it up in the hollander book to see what other cars that have the same part that will fit your malibu.

The 2000 Chevrolet Malibu takes 22" drivers side & 19" passenger side replacement wiper blades. Lookup part numbers by vehicle make, model and year to ensure proper attachment as well as lengths. Use book at store or lookup wiper size on line.

I'm having the same problem - I took it in to our mechanic as the lockset was also seized up from not being used. Turns out the new part (including the electric solonoid) is about $500. Our Malibu has nearly 200K on it & I felt it was not worth it. I'm trying to find a used one, but they don't seem to be around. Let me know if you find anything...

Either the power brake booster is bad, or it don't have any vacuum going to it. That is the part that the brake master cylinder is bolted to.

No, it is the parent company of Chevrolet.

The Chevy Malibu weighs about 3,400 pounds. The weight of a vehicle is usually posted on a part of the driver's door frame or the door itself.
